This recipe came from Allrecipes (Ruth Crickmer). My whole family loved it even though it cooked too fast. The original recipe said 'high heat' on the grill, which my husband did. It ended up cooking 8 minutes total, charred but not burnt tasting, and very juicy and flavorful. We'll turn down the heat next time for texture, but this is a keeper in our home!
Ingredients in a marinade can be varied, but it is important to use wine, vinegar, lemon juice, or some acidic liquid to break down the connective tissues. This process will make the steak more tender. Remaining marinade ingredients add flavor. Use a good-quality olive oil or walnut oil; add good-quality wine or vinegar and a combination of fresh and dried herbs, seasonings, garlic and soy sauce to make a flavorful marinade.
This is a delicious all-purpose dry seasoning that is good in spaghetti sauce, chicken and dumplings, in pasta salads, or sprinkled on fresh, ripe sliced tomatoes. It also makes a good Italian Salad Dressing for salads or marinade. Omit salt if you like.
Brining pork chops is undoubtedly the best way to prepare them. After I did it once, I will no longer prepare them any other way. They are juicy and delicious and far better than any I've ever had before.
An absolutely delicious salad dressing that is the house dressing at a five star restaurant that shall be left unnamed, I got this from a friend that works there. Very tangy and sweet. Like a creamy raspberry vinaigarette.
This tastes similar to the brand, "Annie's Natural Goddess Dressing." It's also great for chicken and just about anything else you can dip into it. Try it as a sandwich spread. NOTE: The recipe can be adjusted to your own taste preferences; more or less garlic or onions, etc., until you find the perfect combination of tastes to suit your family. This recipe is a good foundation recipe. NOTE 2: When using the food processor, don't blend too long which incorporates air, making the dressing very thick. Just add a little water to thin it out.
Again....another "Quick Cooking" recipe. I live and breathe by this magazine...lol. This is a very impressive salad dressing. The last time I had company, I put all of the ingredients in the blender and waited until the company came to blend everything together. I got a lot of "ooohs and ahhs" and they loved the taste.
